South West Art

Neil Cox

Born in 1955 near London, Neil was always interested in conservatin and the environment and drew and painted wildlife from an early age. Whilst reading Law at Southampton University he developed his skills during frequent trips to the New Forest.

Having successfully graduated, early interest from galleries and private collectors prompted a decision to return to his first love and pursue a career as a wildlife artist. Galleries soon showrd interest and he has been very successful with exhibitions throughout the UK and across Europe. His individual technique and approach to painting makes his work highly sought after by those who know and love the natural world, or simply appreciate good art.

Neil travels extensively, constantly seeking new ideas. His move from the Cotswolds to Sidmouth has enabled him to gain fresh inspiration from the landscape and great diversity of wildlife in this stunning part of the country.
